From the architect. Designed to be an important social and cultural hub for the city, the ground plane is dedicated to the public domain. The tower sits six storeys above the ground, opening the street level to public use and open space. Four low-rise sticks housing mainly the council’s library, customer service centre and other office space, provide slashes of colour floating over the urban plaza. At ground level, retail and food amenities service the public domain.

There are two distinct sections to the tower: yellow sticks set apart the top ten levels for use by other tenants, while a perforated sunscreen over the glass façade demarcates the offices of the city council. The sunscreen illustrates the council’s commitment to ESD principles and provides a distinct identity for the council.

Located in a key urban position, Brisbane Square is a gateway to the city and a distinctive addition to the city’s skyline.

Living in brisbane this building already looks dated. i admire the aim of the architects but it does not meet expectations
